Though I’ve made a lot of bras over the many years that I sew lingerie, I never made a bralette before. An area to investigate, if not for myself.
My daughther will be a happy recipient of my testing and I might use the experience on these in a future class.
This one is the Watson bra from Cloth Habit.
The pattern uses a wider closure at the back, but I didn’t have one and adapted to suit the narrow closure.
This one is made to the measurements of my daughter. When I see her and she tries it on, I’ll ask whether she wants a closure at the back on the next one. A lot of bralettes don’t have a closure. But as this style is not suitable for myself, I can’t judge this aspect.
This red one was actually the first one I made. It’s from the pattern that came with the Craftsy class Lingerie essentials from Alison Smith. For this one I just picked a size to try. No size chart included for the bralette, which is strange. A fun pattern though, I really love the back.
Not a spectacular photo, but still a lovely sight of the Morspoort in Leiden.
Leiden is a city close to my heart, I’ve lived there during my student days and a few years after. I’m living close to it again now. A new walking route was recently published following the canals surrounding the old city. I’ve found some spots I didn’t know about!
This is not one of those unknown spots, it’s a well known location.
